How can You Find Out If You Have a Summon from Court?
Given the nature of civil lawsuits and smaller claims, most of the time, summons are delivered by a court representative or the local sheriff to the debtor company. So, don’t worry. You will get summon to your office. If you are suspecting that there might be one, then connect with the court or you can search online. At times, some debt collection agencies can try to connect you too.
What if a Debtor Company is Summoned and They Don’t Go?
If a debtor company has been summoned, then it is already a serious incident. Hence, they should not miss going to court. If they don’t arrive at the court, they will miss their chance to contest the case altogether. However, if the company cannot come on that specific date, they should immediately connect with the court with a request for rescheduling.
How Often Does a Debt Collection Agency Sue a Business?
This depends on various factors. On one hand, if the debt is a huge amount and the debtor is reluctant to even come to a settlement for it, then litigation will be filed against the debtor. If the debtor remains unreachable, then they can be sued. The main point is a debtor must pay the full debt.
